In December, the Faculty Council heard a presentation about the Thrive@Carolina program. Over the past year, the program opened four student success positions, expanded transition courses for new students, awarded grants for active-learning classes, launched student success tools, and convened a student retention working group. The goal of the program is to encourage student success based on a number of factors that include, but are not limited to GPA, retention and graduation. Thrive@Carolina seeks to train faculty and staff to identify and reach out to students who can benefit from being referred to student success services on campus. The Faculty Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2015-15. Statement on Thrive@Carolina to express their support for the program.
No other resolutions were introduced or voted on. A complete summary of the meeting and recording of the proceedings are available here.
